Ammoudara Crete

Ammoudara (GR: Αμμουδάρα) in Crete is our residence during Spring and Autumn. It is mostly a 4 kilometre long sandy beach west of Heraklion lined with hotels, some of them very large complexes, taverns, restaurants, bars, cafes etc that offer umbrellas and sun-beds on the beach. The sand is fine and the sea is clear and safe. The area in general is touristic and offers a full range of facilities, among them the modern multiplex “Technopolis” with cinema and an open-air theater.

But there is more, much more to Ammoudara than just beaches and nightlife. The surrounding area is wonderful. You can visit the spring of Almyros river, which offers the greatest amount of water in Crete and forms the largest habitat in the area. Nearby, there is the gorge of Almiros, which is very easy to walk. You could walk till the top of Stroumboulas mountain, the volcano-like mount of Heraklion.
